GRAVENHURST, ON – Sawdust City Brewing has announced the release of a pair of collaborations with fellow Ontario breweries.
Big Deal Wee Heavy (8.3% abv):
This beer is kind of a big deal. For two years, we waited patiently to brew with our friends at Muddy York. When we were finally able to make it happen, we made it an even bigger deal asking our pals at Brew Culture to join. Built on a simple malt body, but boiled for 3 hours to bring forth rich, toasted caramel notes, the Wee Heavy is a traditional style that requires patience to display its deep complex flavours. It took 2 years, so yeah, this Wee Heavy is a pretty big deal!
You Got Me Hummin’ For The Holidays Farmhouse Christmas Ale (8.5% abv):
For the 5th installment of our collabo series with Eastbound Brewing, this year’s Sam & Dave Christmas Ale is a decidedly different take than in years past. Leaving the Belgian styles we normally do, this year we are going to try our hand at a Farmhouse Christmas Ale. Utilizing a new hybrid saison/kveik yeast from the Escarpment Yeast labs and lightening up the colour, this year’s offering is most certainly different from years past. With a fruity and spicy yeast driven aroma, a blend of 5 different malts, and some fun new hops, there is definitely lots to feel merry for about this special holiday release. Pouring a dusty unfiltered orange, it has a fluffy white head with aromas of spice, melon, apple and honey. The flavour has a ton of spice from the rye malt and saaz hops with a touch of bruised apple and fruit. The elevated ABV gives a full bodied mouthfeel with a noticeable alcohol warming. A real holiday sipper to be enjoyed with family & friends.
Both beers are available now at the Sawdust City retail shop and online store.
